Name: Phoebe
Breed: Jack Russel
Age approx: 7 years
Phoebe's story is heartbreaking. Her owner had mental health problems and unfortunately Phoebe's scarred concave head is the result! So you won't be surprised to hear that Phoebe has some trust issues and on some occasions has nipped.Re homing her isn't going to be easy.
But Phoebe to our delight has made progress.
She has just started jumping onto the lap of one of the kennel ladies ( this is only on Phoebe's terms though ) We are looking for a unique home situation for Phoebe. Maybe a home with a spare room and a stair gate, a quiet place and enclosed garden( no need for lengthy walks .)Some one with time and patience and a good understanding of dogs.
We will be available to help at all times. She would need to be the only pet and a child free environment.
Would be available for long term foster with all vets fees covered and full assistance from us.


Name: Frankie
Breed: Boxer/Labrador cross
Age approx:  1 1/2 years
Frankie came to us from social services because her owner was being moved into sheltered accommodation and Frankie's living conditions were very bad. But despite this Frankie has a wonderful friendly exuberant nature.
She loves to play with toys and will run round and round with one in her mouth having fun and rolling in the grass She enjoys a lot of fuss and will press her body into you for more. Once she's let off a bit of steam She will sit nicely for you and give you her paw. She will lay down for you and she will even crawl which is lovely to see.
So a young very clever girl with lots of potential to learn even more Frankie could be homed with an older male dog pending a meeting and older children purely because she's quite strong.


Name: Pippa
Breed Labrador
Age approx:  10 years
Tragically Pippa's owner died with no else able to take her so this old girl came to us.
It would be wonderful if Pippa could find a loving home to live out her final years.
She's still quite lively for her age and still plays fetch. She enjoys her treats and sits nicely.
She loves company and when she's been exercised she loves to loyally settle at your feet and get a good belly rub.
Due to Pippa's age long term foster would be available, vets fees covered and support from us.
Pippa would prefer to be the only pet and older children purely because she's quite strong


Name: Ruby
Breed: German Shepherd
Age approx:  1 1/2 year  
Ruby's owners worked long hours and so sadly she spent a lot of time on her own in the garden attached to a running line. Not a good start at all for a young dog ! She also came to us with an infection in her stomach which has taken her 3 months to recover from and now she's doing well and happily she's gaining weight.
When Ruby is in the exercise area she loves the toys especially a squeaky one and plays with the balls and she can get two in her mouth.
But she needs encouragement and she does take herself off to the corner and sit alone, which is probably the result of being left alone for so long in her early days. She does come round though and she's learning quickly.
We feel Ruby would benefit from going to a home who has experience of the GSD and she would probably do better on her own, and older children.


Name: Sammi
Breed: Boarder Collie Cross
Age approx: 5 years
Lovely little Sammi has been with us a few years now , one of our long term residents and unfortunately she keeps getting over looked.
She was bought on a social media site on a whim. No interview no home check no cooling off period !She's extremely pretty and she has a glossy coat. Sammi is initially very excited and bouncy when she comes out but after a very good run and play time she will settle. She's a clever energetic girl.
We think she would really  benefit from agility classes and be top girl.
She just needs a chance to shine and be in a home where she gets the attention she needs.
Sammi is a very friendly girl and enjoys lots of fuss. She loves being groomed and  playing with toys and enjoys playing fetch.
Sammi's not keen on cats but could be homed with a male dog. A secure fenced garden as well for this inquisitive little girl., and children aged 12+


Name: Lexi
Breed: Boxer Cross
Age approx:  3 years
Lexi  is an extremely beautiful looking girl with a brindle coat and white blaze on her chest.
She has a lovely nature and is very loyal and sweet and she loves being stroked and spending time with us .
When Lexi's in the exercise area she loves to wander around having a good sniff and taking it all in.
She enjoys playing with toys and happily runs  after a ball and enjoys a squashed football.
She sits nicely and is patient.
Lexi would prefer to be the only pet companion in the house, and older children purely because she's quite strong


Name: Tess
Breed: Rotweiler
Age approx: 4 years
Tess is a gentle giant! She loves human contact and is keen to please. Tess gets on well with other dogs although she is not so keen on cats. She would love to be in a family with older children.


Name: Tia
Breed: Labrador/Staffordshire Bull Terrier Cross
Age approx: 7 years
Tia's owners were evicted and she was living in unsuitable filthy conditions ! She's been with us a long time.But despite this awful start she's just a lovely friendly happy girl. She loves running round and round with a ball. And really is just as good as gold.
She's very playful and loves playing fetch and will keep bringing the ball back and dropping at your feet over and over which is a pleasure to see. She takes treats gently and just a great all rounder.
Once she's had a good play she loves nothing more than to lay stretched out on the grass with her legs behind her with a ball. Tia's not keen on cats but could be homed with a male pending a meeting and older children because she's quite strong. Maybe teenagers.


Name: Tina
Breed: German Shepherd Cross (small build)
Age approx: 2 years
Black in colour. When she came to us, she was timid, but now with the love and care she has been given, she has developed a nice personality. She is loving and obedient. She does not like cats and would not be suitable with young children.
My name is Tina and I am a 3 years old German Shepherd Cross. I used to have a friend that looked like me called Jacob, but he found his forever home and is always on facebook being taken to nice places. I wish it was my turn soon, please come and see me.


Name: Dotty
Breed: Collie/Labrador/Beagle cross
Age approx: 3  years
Dotty's owner sadly passed away and that's why she came to us last summer.
She's a small to medium sized  very pretty girl and her front legs look like they have white socks.
Dotty has an incredibly sweet nature and is going to make a lovely family member or companion.
She is loyal and follows us in the exercise area and loves company. She loves to play ball and drops on command and enjoys playing fetch. Dotty likes to be be brushed and she takes treats gently from your hand.
She travels quietly in a car.  She's just a pleasure to be with.
Dotty could possibly be homed with an calm older male and children aged over 5.


Name: Star
Breed: Burmese Mountain dog Cross
Age approx: 4 years
Owners moving to smaller property and have decided Star is too large for their new home. Friendly, obedient and good with children.


Name: Jessie
Breed: German Shepherd
Age approx: 10 years
Jessie is a lovely friendly old girl and we are currently looking for long term foster care for her.
She really deserves the comfort of a loving home for her to live out her twilight years. When she is in the exercise area she loves to roll in the grass and trot around having a sniff.
She recently went to the vets and had a bath and groom ( her spa day ) because she has very thick long hair.  And she thoroughly enjoyed it. She looked like she was grinning ear to ear.
Could you be that special person to give Jessie a home? long term foster would have full support from us including the vets fees.
Jessie's not keen on cats and small dogs and would be better homed in a house with older children. She's a smaller shepherd but still on quite big


Name: Tinkerbell
Breed: Lurcher Cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Age approx: 20 weeks old
Tinkerbell came to us because her owners had a child with special needs and they realized they couldn't give her the time she fully deserved.
She has a lovely sweet nature and when she came to us she was understandably a little nervous but as good as gold ! Tinkerbell is presently enjoying the company of 5 other dogs in her foster home so she's getting excellent socialization skills. So she could be homed with another dog pending meeting, and children a little older because she's still got a lot of growing to do.


Name: Snoops
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Age approx: 5 years
Snoops came to us because the couple who owned her said she was too boisterous with their young Children and being a young girl at the time it not surprising! We Usually advice 5+ with younger dogs.
That was 3 years ago. So sadly Snoops is one of our long term residents. It's such a shame because she has such a  friendly playful nature and just lovely to be with. She will give you lots of kisses and shows lots of affection to everyone she meets She will sit nicely for you and if you have a treat she's very funny because she almost lays down for it. Despite being a strong girl she takes treats incredibly gently from your hand. She loves her belly rubs and lots of fuss.
Just a lovely girl. We would like Snoops to be the only pet and older children purely because she's on the strong side


Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Age approx: 10 years
Lovely Lola is a smaller Staffordshire Bull Terrier and she's been with us quite a while now.
She came from a house where she was being used for breeding and they no longer needed her.
When Lola is on the lead she calms down very quickly to walk nicely. She loves a cuddle and when she has her belly rubbed, she snorts like a little pig because she's just so happy. She loves to play games for her treats rather than play with toys. One of the ladies at the kennels has actually  taught Lola to take treats gently from her mouth. She is as soft as grease.
Lola is getting on now and she would be available for long term foster to live out her twilight years and we would assist with vets fees and you  would have our full support.
Could you be that special person ?  We would like to home Lola as the only pet and with older children because she's quite strong


Name: Summer
Breed: Dogue de Bordeaux
Age approx: 4 years
Summer started life in a puppy factory and the lady who bought her gave her up because her first dog didn't like her ! and so she came to us. Summer is a very distinctive looking girl.
She's actually the same breed as the dog in "Turner and Hooch" If you know the film you'll know what a lovely temperament these dogs have. When Summer is in the exercise area she will break into a little trot and then she will drop down and  roll and roll in the grass . Then she will attempt to sit on your lap if you're sitting on the ground.
All 70 kg of her ! She's extremely loving and will prod you with her paw for more fuss.
Summer could be available for long term foster with full veterinary support and help from us.
We would Summer to be rehomed as the only pet and with older children due to her size.


Name: Quavers
Breed: Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Age approx:  3 years
Quavers is with us because of a marriage split. She has a striking very dark brindle coat.
Quavers is a beautifully natured girl. And just loves being with us.
She's a bundle of fun and her tail wags continuously.
She loves her games and very good at playing fetch and we find that she's picking up commands very quickly. She loves a fuss and will press her body into you to make sure she gets maximum cuddles.
She loves her belly rubs alot !!! She's just a real softie.
Quavers knows her basic commands and happily sits and gives her paw. She has huge potential .
Quavers is incredibly gentle and takes treats from yours hands,.  gentlest I've know actually.
Quavers could be homed with male dogs and childrenaged  6+ because she is quite strong.


Name: Lily
Breed: Husky Cross
Age approx: 3 years
Lilly, loves to come out and play chase with a ball or tug-o-war with a raggie toy. She is very affectionate and really enjoys some fuss and attention, not quite so keen on a bath but behaves herself and puts up with it ! Although excitable and very playful when first taken out, she is smart, obedient and easily trained with a pocketful of biscuits and praise. She goes around most of the agility course but not got the hang on the hoop yet! Lilly would suit a family with older children that can give her plenty of love,  attention and some training.


Name: Shona
Breed: Blue Merle Border Collie 
Age approx:   8 years
Shona's world was turned upside down when her owners marriage broke up and neither were in a postion to take her or their other dog she came in with. It all proved too  much change for them both and the other dog started to Bully Shona and we had to separate them . So she was left alone. Shona is a quiet reserved girl and she needs time to get to know you. She's gentle and has a sweet nature.
When we take Shona in the exercise  area we let her come to us and when she does, it feels like a real privilege especially when she lays down and rolls on her back for us to tickle her tummy.  We feel she would benefit from being in a home with people who have experience of this type of dog and appreciate her cautious gentle nature, and somewhere where she can have a bit of quiet time.
She would do better as the only dog and with children old enough to understand that Shona may not want cuddles 24/7 at first.

Cokie & Bonnie

Name: Cokie & Bonnie
Breed: (Cokie Male) Yorkie/Coki-Cairn Terrier Cross, (Bonnie Female) Small German Shepherd Cross
Age approx:   8 & 10years 
Sadly Bonnie and Coki's owner was taken into care. They do need to be homed together as they depend on each other.  The real delight with this pair is when they are out in the exercise area. They are just a joy to watch and guaranteed to put a smile on anyone's face.  Bonnie gets very excited with the toys and will play fetch over and over and bring the ball back every time. She sits and gives her paw and and is very well behaved. Coki is hilarious  because his favorite toy is a football which is as big as he is, and gets totally fixated on it.  Bonnie has no chance of getting it off him.
This pair would be better homed as the only dogs and children a little older.


Name: Pickles
Breed: Labrador Cross 
Age approx:    6 years
Pickles came to us because her devoted owner had a heart attack.
She's a super girl  and we are surprised she's still with us because she's so amiable and loving. Pickles is playful and loves chasing a ball. She will bring it back and drop it at your feet. She's knows how to sit and give her paw and will lay down when you tell her to.
Pickles takes great pleasure when she out in the grass  exercise area by laying flat on her belly with her legs stretched out behind her and a ball in between her paws . Lovely to see !Pickles could be homed with a male dog and children aged 5+


Name: Molly
Breed: English Bull Terrier Cross
Age approx: 5 1/2 Months
This beautiful puppy came to us as her owner was an older gentleman on his own with a disability and he realised he couldn't give Molly the time and attention she needed.
He tells us she loves others dogs. Not sure about cats because she's not come across them and absolutely adores children. Although our advice is always children a little older due to strength. She will grow a bit more. He says she enjoys car journeys and is crate trained. Yesterday she was a dream and was in full play mode to our delight. and she's not bad at all on the lead for a puppy. So just a lovely lovely pup needing a loving home.

Breed Lurcher Cross
Age approx:  7 years
She lived in spain with her owner and he died. So was bought back to this country to be rehomed.
Very easy to walk on the lead. She loved playing in the exercise area. We played fetch and she kept bringing back the balls.
She took a particular shine to one which we are going to let her keep in her kennel. Extremely obedient. Sits/gives her paw/drops. And i think she would have let us groom her all day if she had chance.

She's good with cats and dogs. And good with children but maybe 5+ because she's slightly bigger than medium..



Name: Mitzy
Breed Labrador Cross
Age approx:   5 months

Mitzy actually for her age is a very well behaved puppy and she's been as good as gold for us. She's plays beautifully and enjoys all the toys and is already learning all her basic commands and starting to fetch balls back. She's playful , fun loving and quite obedient for her age, and a real pleasure to be with. Mitzy could be homed with another dog pending a meeting and we think she would be ok with cats.
